Beware of Teacher Burnout and How to Spot it
As teachers, going beyond the call of duty is something that we do frequently!
We push ourselves to the limits to serve our learners, but with mounting pressures on our time and greater teacher accountability, it is not beyond the realms of possibility that burnout can strike. Recognising the signs before crashing into a wall at full throttle is important for your well-being, but also for your ability to excite and challenge the learners in your classroom.
